Rails making major comeback beginning of a new Era by Harre Demoro rail transit is making a comeback in downtown Oak land nine years after a weary key system electric interurban rumbled Down 12th Street for the last time. Many wondered that Early sunday morning of april 20, 1958, if the end of the key sys tem trains meant the East Bay s rail transit Era had finally closed. But last Friday City officials broke ground for the downtown portion of the Bay area rapid transit Bart subway. The picturesque streetcars and interurban were gone for Ever.

The steam trains started on sept. 2, 1863, and Laid the foun Dation for the Southern Pacific s East Bay rail system. Next came horse cars. The Oakland Railroad co. Opened a line in 1869, and built a car barn at the foot of Broadway. More lines followed. At one time there were six sets of tracks on Broadway. There was a Cable car line on san Pablo Avenue by 1886 and another was built to Piedmont in 1890. But rail transit was t rapid As Long As cables and horses were the motive Power. The answer was electricity and in 189f the Oakland and Berkeley rapid transit co. Built a line out Grove Street to Berkeley. Cars terminated at second and Franklin streets. Another company Laid rails and Strung trolley wire out East 14th Street to Hayward and began service in 1892. Steam powered trains were operated from the old Alameda ferry terminal to 14th and Franklin streets. There also was steam train service on Tele graph Avenue for a time. It was Francis Marion Borax Smith who consolidated most of the local transit lines. In 1901 the Smith interests formed Oakland transit Consoli dated the forerunner of the old key system and its successor the Alameda Contra Costa transit District. Smith modernized and enlarged the rail system. In 1903 he finished the first electric interurban b be from a new ferry pier to Berkeley. By 1918, there were two of these lines serving downtown Oak land one on 22nd Street now grand the other on 12th. Southern Pacific also built a network of electric trains popularly called the red electric the 1920s were the Golden years of trolley car service in downtown Oakland. Streetcars clattered along most major streets. They ran to Hayward and Richmond rum a tangle of overhead wires at 14th and Broadway kept trolleys running in 1920s bled across the old Webster Street Bridge to Alameda and served Long forgotten places such As Leona Heights and Idora Park. Many of the cars had Wicker seats. Strange looking Basket fenders scooped up pedestrians who strayed in their path. The Clang of the trolley Gong was a familiar downtown sound. But the Blat of the fuming Auto Mobile also was becoming familiar. It became a death Knell for the trolley cars and interurban. Both the Southern Pacific and key system abandoned com Muter ferry service to san fran Cisco in 1939 and rerouted their trains Over the Bay Bridge. The . Quit there in 1941. The ornate . Red train station at 7th and Broadway be came a grocery store. Oakland Tribune fri., Jan. 19 key system trains and Street cars continued. World War ii brought Back Many transit patrons who could no longer Pur Chase tires and gasoline be cause of rationing. As the War ended the key system announced it would buy streamlined transit trains and maybe new streetcars. Electric buses were ordered but were sent to los Angeles when the key system was sold in 1946. The new company bought no new trains and replaced the streetcars with buses in 1948.
